Flare: The Blurb.

In a break from the usual selection of short stories and convention reports, the next few weeks of content are going to focus on my upcoming book. Yes, it's true, I've written a book. It's called "Flare" and it's an action-comedy about superheroes, It's been ready to go since last September and I've spent the last ten months shopping it around to agents and publishers to see if anyone will bite. Despite some decent feedback nobody's bitten on it yet so I've decided to just go ahead and publish the fucker myself via Kindle and createspace. (excuse my French). Over the coming weeks I'll shove up some sample chapters to give you an idea of what I've been working on these past two years (yes, really!). First up, here's the blurb for the back of the book and product description on Amazon. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think.


It’s Time for new Heroes.

Ryan Curtis is almost an average teenager. There’s just one small problem: his parents are superheroes.

Ryan just wants to be normal but instead his family life is full of danger, excitement and action, but then the tragic actions of a demented scientist mean he has to go into hiding  

Now he’s being chased across the world by a secret organisation which really wants to harvest his organs. He’s tired, lonely and needs help, but all he has for support is a nineteen year old woman with serious anger management issues and an eccentric Japanese inventor. Now they have to team up, defeat the bad guys and save the world. If only it were that simple.

Over the top action, laugh out loud humour, suspicious people named Jimmy! This book has it all!

If you’ve ever thought: “The world needs a novel where a teenaged girl throws grenades at monsters”, then you’re in for a treat!
